Everybody involved with the Ride 4 Kids Charity Event would like to thank the entire KIS community who embraced and helped drive the initiative to raise money and awareness for the needy children of Phuket.
The event was a huge success and Ride 4 Kids managed to smash their target goal of 1 million thb which is incredible and will make a huge difference in the lives of many children of Phuket.
We are a small school, but the sense of family and spirit amongst, teachers, students and parents is great to be part of, and we managed to raise more money than any of the other schools on the island (which of course Stewart and Donna proudly announced to the entire Ride 4 Kids crew).
We really appreciate your sponsorship with the “ride a thon“ challenge. Our KIS community raised an amazing 50,000THB!!!!
Many thanks once again and feel free to get more involved with Ride 4 Kids in 2018!
We had a fantastic day in support of Ride 4 Kids charity bike ride when Phuket Live Radio – Live 89.5 joined us for our sponsored cycle. Our Early Years and Primary students managed to clock up 50km with a little bit of help from teachers – if you forgot to bring in the suggested donation a collection box is located next to the stationary bike which is at the school entrance all week – parents are welcome to jump on and add a few kilometres to the clock if you can!
We would like to say a big well done to all students involved in our annual PAIS Performing Arts Day earlier this week. The day’s workshops were themed around Greek theatre and everyone enjoyed a spectacular performance at the end of the day – thank you to our visiting students from British International School, Phuket, HeadStart International School, UWC Thailand and Kajonkiet EP.
KIS were proud sponsers of the Phuket Night Run 2017 that took place on January 28th. Several members of the KIS community participated in the event and ran up to 11.2km. Thank you to the organisers for letting us be part of such a fun charity event – looking forward to next year!
KIS held an informative talk regarding our soon-to-be launching Sixth Form programme today in the Library for perspective parents from the EP programme. The talk was led by our Head of Secondary, Mr. Gareth Eynon. Several parents attended and asked a lot of interesting questions – thank you to all who joined us.
If any parents have any inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact our Admin Office for further information.
At KIS, we recently a few informational talks for all our parents. This gave them the opportunity to meet our management team and listen to what we plan on offering in the future. The talk also explained what we currently do as a school and what our curriculum encompasses, followed by a little Q&A. The talks were held both in English and Thai to cater to all our parents.
On Monday the 14th, KIS celebrated Loy Krathong in a quiet manner. The children had Thai cultural activities in their classrooms and made their own krathongs to float after school if they wished. The activity was led by our Thai staff at the school and evidently, the children enjoyed the activities tremendously.
Loy Krathong has been an annual festival, celebrated throughout the southwestern Thai cultures. The krathongs are believed to take your troubles away as they float, and offers up your wishes and prayers, with the incense and glowing candles.
We hope that you had a good Loy Krathong, and that this lunar year brings joy and light into your life!
On Tuesday 8th November 2016, 42 teachers from Wat Kajon Rangsan School, Phuket came to visit our school on a best practice visit. The visitors joined us for Primary morning assembly where they viewed a presentation about Ancient Peru led by our Year 4 students, after which they enjoyed a tour of our school grounds and facilities and presentations about international education, teaching and learning from Nicola Chokkuea, Head of Primary and Deputy Academic Director, and Gareth Eynon, Head of Secondary.
We were happy as always to welcome our visitors and to share best practice with another school. We hope to continue to develop the relationship between our establishments in the future.
